Volunteer with Alsama

It was incredible to see how quickly our students took to our chess teaching project. We have never seen this level of passion and commitment before! Inspiration flows everywhere.

At Alsama, I am constantly immersed in a challenging, but highly motivating environment and a lot of that motivation comes from my students. Working with them is not only about teaching. It's also about establishing connection with them and being inspired by their desire to invest in a life outside the camp.
